Chief Creative Officer
Having worked across all advertising channels, including brand, retail, digital and direct response, Steve’s focus for many years has been on melding these disparate disciplines to create powerful, effective campaigns. For nearly 20 years, Steve has partnered with the world’s top corporations on brands of all sizes. At Ogilvy, he produced award-winning work for Ameritrade, American Express and Jaguar. With Hill Holliday, he built and led a high performance retail team for Verizon Wireless. For DDB, he was Global Creative Director on ExxonMobil, developing advertising for Esso, Exxon, Mobil and On the Run locations worldwide. At Havas, Steve was Creative Director for the Global ExxonMobil Corporate Brand. His experience ranges from automotive to energy to pharma to financial—but his expertise is in understanding how people think, feel and behave. At R2C Group, Steve leads the creative department and is helping to make Transactional Brand Building a force in the marketing world.
Outside of work, Steve enjoys the world of photography; he’s on the faculty of The International Center of Photography in New York City and conducts seminars around the world. Sometimes he writes. Sometimes he draws. Often, he thinks about adopting a dog.
